Student Support

At-Risk Services

Howell Public Schools offers At-Risk services to students who are academically under achieving. These students are identified by the school's At-Risk teacher and aides using state assessment scores, classroom grades and teacher recommendations. At Risk servicing is then provided through our Reading Coach and aides pushing in to our English encore support classes to offer academic tutoring. The high school also offer evening credit recovery courses to allow students a second opportunity to receive credit. This allows students to remain on track for graduation with their class. At-Risk services are paid for with state funding (31a money). 

Elective Core Support Courses

The high school has developed elective core support courses, similar to the middle school's Encore Support Courses. One example is called Strategic Literacy. This course mirrors the English Language Arts high school content expectations and allows students a second opportunity during the day to strengthen their ELA skills.

Project Success

Project Success small group adolescent support services are provided through a federal grant to all Livingston County schools. A Project Success Counselor works side-by-side with a HPS counselor, one day a week, in each our middle schools to provide a menu of small groups from which students may choose to participate. Topics include: Coping SkillsDivorceInsight and Teen Choices (click link to see group outline). Students must obtain parent permission to miss instruction in an elective class for the 8 weekly sessions. Please speak to a counselor if you are interested in this service.

Student Intervention Teams (S.I.T)

A Student Intervention Team may be requested by a parent, student, teacher, counselor or administrator. The purpose of the team is to review student academic and/or behavior concerns and then create a plan for success. The student is monitored for progress (using academic and/or behavior data) and encouraged for a minimum of 9 weeks. Students take ownership in their plan, their data, and their achievements. Counselors facilitate the S.I.T. process and should be contacted by anyone interested in getting a S.I.T. initiated.
